Pirates Vs. Cardinals: Andrew McCutchen Held Out Of Sunday's Lineup

Andrew McCutchen is being held out of the Pirates' lineup on Sunday as a precautionary measure.


The Pittsburgh Pirates will look to complete a series sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, however if they want to do so, it will be without center fielder Andrew McCutchen. McCutchen is being kept out of Sunday's lineup after tweaking his wrist while making a diving catch during Saturday's game. He left the game early as a precautionary measure and will be held out today for the same reason. Both he, and manager Clint Hurdle said the injury is not serious.

Here are the lineups for Sunday's game.
